Covid Booster Shots – worldwide concerns over long term immunity and new Covid19 variants have convinced some countries to deploy Covid Booster Shots.
Es gibt eine wachsende Liste von Covid19-Varianten, neuerdings die Delta-Variante, die sich auf der ganzen Welt verbreitet hat.
There is a risk that these are more infectious and dangerous than the original Covid19 virus.
Die meisten gefährdeten Personen haben jetzt zwei Impfungen erhalten und sind vollständig geschützt.
The UK NHS advises that any potential booster programme should begin in September 2021.
This will maximise protection in those who are most vulnerable to serious COVID-19 ahead of the winter months.
Flu / Influenza vaccines are typically delivered in autumn.
Das NHS considers that, where possible, a joined up approach to the delivery of COVID-19 and influenza vaccination could support delivery and maximise uptake of both vaccines.
It is highly likely that over-50s and those at risk will be offered a booster at the same time as a flu jab, with the programme expected to begin in early September.
Data from Public Health England suggesting the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine is 96% effective and the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine is 92% effective against hospital admission after two doses.
